The Breslow Foudation was formed to honor the memory of Barry Breslow. The scholarships honor the late Barry Breslow, an active participant in the automotive aftermarket for many years. Breslow, who passed way in December 2005, was one of the original owners of Autospecialty Inc. and a former chairman of the Auto International Association (AIA), now a segment within Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA). He also was a member of the AIA Hall of Fame and a past recipient of the AIA Person of the Year.
